Default Tactrix 2.0 for Mac

From what I've seen on this forum there isn't a lot of information regarding openport tuning with a mac rather than a pc. This is for all you mac users out there that are looking to tune with open port but don't know where to start. You don't have to be good with computers at all to do this (I'm not), but it is going to take some common sense. You might also have to troubleshoot, don't come crying to the forum just because it didn't work the first time. Ill try to make this step by step as painless and dummy proof as possible. The whole process shouldn't take you more than an hour including downloads and all that crap.

Step 1 Download vmfusion 5 software, install etc.
-Just pay for it! don't ask me where to get it free because I don't have a clue!

Step 2 Secure a copy of windows 7 (ultimate is what I'm using)
-Self explanatory. Get ahold of windows seven and download it to your desktop. Again don't ask me where to get it, you might even have to pay for it. Ask one of your nerdy friends, it worked for me.

Step 3 Open up vmfusion, select create new. Choose to continue without a disc, select "use operating system installation disc image file". Then, in the menu that appears find your desktop and select your copy of windows seven. click "continue".

Step 4 Select your operating system.
-Choose whatever the hell you downloaded in the drop down. for me it was windows 7x64 iso. Click "continue".

Step 5 Check "Use easy install". If you're copy of windows is genuine, enter your product key. If not, then continue without it i guess. It will work the same.

Step 6 Choose to run seamless, and finish. Its going to ask you if you want to install windows blah blah etc. Just say yes and windows will install itself (could take a while) and then your new windows computer will boot up in your vmfusion window, feel free to open and close it just like an app. Just use it like a regular windows pc from there and you'll be all set.

Ill make the actual Tactrix/romraider/ecuflash part, if theres actually anybody out there who wants it.

I used Bootcamp to install Windows 7 on my Mac since it is free and comes from Apple themselves. I'm a fan of running a virtual machine instead of having to reboot but Bootcamp is always another option. The drivers Apple supplies for the Windows 7 OS work really well. I haven't had an issue yet.

Thanks for the run down for us.

I agree 100%, it works great like this. I did this for 2 years until I got a dedicated netbook

I do this too, using Bootcamp. Windows 7 is pretty solid, but it usually a good idea to restart the computer before logging, unless you are just grabbing a learning view, and especially before reflashing. You don't want to find Windows restarting to install updates as you reflash...
